It's not about power... it's basically about momentum. (Come on Savage!)

I was expecting that name to yield a ripped up monster balrog flashing bird!

I met a couple of Americans in Magic Woods a few years ago. They told me that one of Greg Loh's training regimes was bashing his fingertips into a wall. His aim? Kill the nerve endings, then you can crimp harder...

Just wondering why a Spaniard would come all the way over to climb some british slimestone.  Great to see just curious.

yes can't fault his crag choice of the Tor and the Cave. Just have to get something done on the Box and Minus 10 then he could retire happy...

Merseysides strongest weak man Richie Crouch crushed Monoblock tonight on only his second session! He's trying to play it quiet but I thought it was eminently worthwhile of a mention on here as it's only the 6th ascent in twenty odd years. He managed the top section without any pre-inspection and I'm really fucking made up for him! Good work beast  :bow:

Pictures to follow...

Will try and sort pictures in the morning. He locked the shit out of the top moves; was most impressive. I'm sure Rich'll stay true to form and will soon be lapping Monoblock with French blows on every move (why isn't there a French blow emoticon yet?). Or better yet a one handed ascent  :wank:

Did he have 5 curries and some tinnies in front of the football to celebrate?

 :thumbsup:

Good effort crouch, you can officially count yourself as a slab climbing master now (which means you never have to do one ever again)

If only there was an unrepeated, hard, holdless slab somewhere that Crouch could go and do  :-\
